(instrumental music). >> thank you very much. i guess what i want to say about an arrangement like that is that it's not meant to use the cedar flute as a bit of exotica, but what the panelists have been speaking about. i
'm terrell brown. more on that a little bit later on this morning. today, though, for sure is the first day of winter, and it sure feels like it for millions of americans. the first snowstorm is pushing east this morning, delivering snow to the great lakes region and heavy rain along the east coast. winter weather advisory are up in 12 stays from the midwest to the northeast. on thursday the nation's heartland took the storm's first punch. in iowa, whiteout conditions caused the 25-car pileup that left two people dead. authorities say drivers on interstate 35 were blinded by blowing snow and couldn't see other vehicles that had stopped or slowed down. the storm also snarling travel not just on the roads, but in the air. about a thousand flights have been grounded and more cancellations are expected. while that's a relatively low number compared to other storms, this one is hitting at the peak of the holiday travel season. >> i already tried calling this morning, and they said the earliest i could get out is this monday, so i'm just scared with all the delays, everybody is going to get bumpe

says that if scott brown who was just defeated by democrat elizabeth warren, if he runs, 47% would vote for brown, 39% would vote for a generic democrat. the democrats stand a chance to lose that seat and scott brown returned to the senate. >> well, there are two other polls up there. one of which shows him winning against democrats, the other that shows most of the democrats beating him. i think the fundamental structure of that case favors the democrats assuming they get a strong nominee. i think as we go through the next months and we talk about guns, we talk about immigration, we talk about tax fairness and the fiscal cliff. that's going to be tough for scott brown. people in massachusetts are not going to want to elect someone who goes down there and votes with these cooky americans. >> thanks for your time tonight. >> happy holiday. gh same to you. happy holiday. today, the nra made a stunning proposal for what it wants to do in america's schools.

the mime playing. anthony brown, who is a composer, is going to get a horn player to play something that is good but it's also someone who hasn't played in a while so it's a bit rusty. that's kind of tricky, but it had to be that because it couldn't be anything too complicated. he couldn't come up with this extraordinary riff set that made everyone kind of stand up and cheer. it had to be this sort of ragedy and yet truthful and sum up everything that's happened in the course of the play. but that's anthony brown's problem, not mine. >> so, anyway, i guess we should open this out to everyone out here. i'm sure you've got some questions that you'd like to ask phillip, so i'll be happy to take questions from the floor. over there in the red. >> can you explain again why the no no boys were rejected by the japanese community? i can understand if they said that they did not want to -- if they answered no no that the caucasian community would reject them, but i'm not sure where the japanese community rejected them. i felt like they were making a stand for the community. >> i think what's
by elizabeth warren in his bid for re-election, that scott brown will be the republican nominee. that special election i think is scheduled for around june of this year and there's already been a few democratic potential candidates who are thinking of challenging scott brown assuming scott brown runs for that senate seat, whether deval patrick, the governor of massachusetts, congressman ed markey, the long serving democratic congressman from massachusetts. there's been some other names mentioned as well, but it's going to have a political fallout as well as international fallout, but the bottom line is the president has decided to nominate john kerry as the next secretary of state. >> it is interesting, too, that the republican scott brown came out for gun control legislation, some form of gurn control legislation, which we have not heard from many sitting republicans. >> scott brown's position has evolved since the fallout a week ago of what happened in newtown, connecticut. he favored an assault weapons ban if done by states. he didn't think the federal government should get involved, but n

, and it's not exactly a mike brown with the lakers situation quite yet. john boehner has a little bit of leeway, shall we say, mainly because eric cantor was all in on this deal as well and the vast majority of the house gop conference supported it. he just couldn't get those 40 chuckle heads, quote, unquote, as his colleague steve la for ret calls them. the way going forward for john boehner is he's taken himself out of the negotiations and the big loss for him last night was that he's essentially allowing harry reid and president obama to draw up a fiscal cliff bill they would like to see. now, there's talks from the senate side that that bill could possibly look like the $250,000 or below tax cuts, an extension of unemployment benefits or getting rid of the sequester. whether that could get through the house remains to be seen, but from where we are right now, the friday before christmas, john boehner is not communicating with president obama and has removed himself from these negotiations. >> well, he may not be mike brown, but he could be mike d'antoni. even senate majority leade
people who vote know on that in the next congress. >> well, senator scott brown, who is not supposed to be in the next congress is still talking about what he will vote for in the next congress because he believes he is poing to get it run for john rkerry's seat. he said he would support an assault weapon's ban. and you could be when it with eye other position. if they keep this visible. hopefully you can maintain this visib visible. this stories are so powerful. because it is chirp, it makes it so hard to go back. we have shown that the nra is losing power fast. >> andjonathan, the president said in december, this will be in my state of the union address. i think we are likely to see somebody in the gallery who has been affected by this kind of murder. >> i think the momentum that joy is afraid is foeing to dissipate actually won't. he has given it more than a month to get them in order so that when he delivers the state of the union address. as you say with the power of e paragraphs in that speech. the power of seeing the parents of one of the slain children or all of them there
